To be fair, this and “should have” sound exactly the same when spoken aloud in some dialects, including my own. Let me show why.
Let’s write this phrase phonetically first. The sh can be written as is, however the oul is pronounced more like the u in “put”, so let’s represent that with “u”. The d is fine too. So the whole word can be represented by “shud”. “of” is less obvious, because there are two forms many use everyday, not just one.
First is one we all think of when we see it. The vowel may either rhyme with that of “bud”, or of “clod”, while the consonant is basic “v”. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll write it as “ov”.
Second is not so simple. Say as if you were talking to a friend the phrase “That guy and his band of ruffians stole my wallet!” You may have noticed that you didn’t pronounce “of” as that first form, although you pronounced something ending in “v”. If so, the vowel you pronounced is what linguists call a “schwa”, which is basically just a lax or reduced vowel.
Now say the phrase as if to a friend, “Fuck! I should have brought the extra Wii remote!” You may notice too that you didn’t pronounce the word “have” with the “h” and the vowel in apple, but with the schwa. Another telltale sign of the schwa is that we often write “should have” as “should’ve”.
So in fact, “should have” and “should of” can be transcribed phonetically as exactly the same: “shud əv”, where “ə” represents the schwa vowel. In that way, it’s not actually that bad a mistake.
The image is actually too small; if you try to zoom in there, the writing becomes all blurred and you can’t read it anyway.
Fun fact: The book has actually been renamed for most countries, not just the US. eg. In France, it’s Où est Charlie?, while in Denmark, it’s Hvor er Holger? or Find Holger.

Make sure that when you upload images, you don’t upload the thumbnails of the images. It’s a very easy mistake to make.
Pretty much. eg. bow vs. bough are heterographs, even though they may be pronounced the same or differently. English is filled with homographs that are heterophones and heterographs that are homophones, and it’ll probably be that way for a long time until a full reform of English spelling (preferably adjusted to dialects).
It’d better be related to a certain game with a silent protagonist’s sequel.

Sounds like a miscarriage or something. D:
